IN THE BEGINNING GOD... Genesis 1:1

Upon graduation from Rosedale High School in 1962, he then attended Los Angeles City College where he earned a certificate in broadcasting.

Such love and support continued to follow Jesse, even throughout his retirement years. Certainly Jesse's presence on this Earth, his kind-heartedness for others resulted in attracting a great multitude of friends under his loving wings.
THE MAN WE ALL KNEW
Jesse was devoted, faithful, and loving towards all his friends and family. With Jesse's god-given talents and special gifts, he was able to beautify homes, lawns and prepare great gourmet meals for the ones he loved. Jesse also enjoyed singing, dancing, fishing, hunting, dominos, and being so-called, self-proclaimed, part-time comedian. He was definitely a man that we all thank God for allowing us the opportunity for him being part of our lives in one shape, form, or fashion. Jesse Granger will be deeply missed.
"I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last."
